Default Pre employment medical exam

Is pre employment medical exam done by cruise ship lines as strict for staff (finance, hr) as it is for crew? I don't have asthma but I do wheeze when I get severe case of cold allergy because of sinusitis which has always gone away with medicine intake.
On the side note, I would like to tell this done not happen very frequently. I go for long runs almost everyday and never end up wheezing. If I get severe cold and the air is dry around then after a while I start wheezing and it has always gone away with asthaline puff and citrazine tablet.
Also, I would like to broaden this question to know, will small medical issues which can be dealt with a tablet or two be neglected by the company considering none of these issues are in any way debilitating?

yes and no. Officially yes. But the crew amount needed is huge so as long as you tell them, they will be ok. So no big deal.
